Strongest Hurricane Ever

Takes forecasters by surprise...most thought it wouldn't go above a Cat. 3...

From the Sun Sentinel:

Hurricane Wilma's sustained winds reached 175 mph and its pressure dropped as
low as 882 mb this morning, making it the strongest Category 5 hurricane on
record with a projected path that crosses southern Florida from west to east.

"This is the lowest pressure on record for a hurricane in the Atlantic
Basin," the National Hurricane Center said in a statement..
